This course covers hazards, controls, use of documents associated with confined space entries, use of environmental monitoring equipment, access equipment and escape breathing apparatus.
Due to the nature of the training course and the emphasis placed on communication, there is only a provision for the assessments to be undertaken in English. Therefore, candidates for this type of training must be able to understand and speak the English language.
